Victory Bowl

Jordan's college team was in a bowl game called the Victory Bowl.  It consisted of the 2 best Christian colleges of the season and was played at the top team's home field.  That field was the home field of North Greenfield University.  Jordan's college.  What a wonderful way to end your college football career.  We were all a little sad I think to see it all end but so excited.  At the end of the game, I looked at his Dad and said how blessed we were.  Jordan never was seriously hurt throughout his career.  I was afraid to say that until the game was over.  When he recieves his bowl ring, I will show that picture as well.  

The entire team.

Justin's Birthday!!!

Justin is our oldest. He is a guy who has an incredible heart. Not only for his family but for others. This weekend, he's at a youth retreat in which he spent time with them last year during his birthday. He happens to be "the brain" of the family. However, you never hear him say how much smarter he is than others. He is a mechanical engineer and works for a great company in Peoria IL by the name of Caterpillar. We just wished he lived closer to us.

I think most important to him is that he is a husband and father. As you can see from this picture he has a joy about him especially when he is with his daughter. We are so proud of him of who and what he is becoming.

Happy Birthday son!

Lauren and the Ninja Geese

Lauren is part of an Ultimate Frisbee club team called the Ninja Geese. I'm not sure where the name came from, but this is college. They had a tournament at Myrtle Beach this weekend. Of course she goes to college in SC and I'm not sure they actually saw the ocean. However, she was there. They placed 5th and we are proud. Her brother isn't the only one who exceeds in sports. Now if we can only get the school to supply that much needed scholarship for her. But, since it is a club sport, that will be a no go. But, if you want to send your contributions her way, it would much be appreciated!

Last home college game - Senior Day

Today was Jordan's last college home game and also Senior day. His Dad took this picture of him as I unfortunately was not able to go. However, I was able to post it. More pictures will follow. We are so proud of him. He was able to fund his entire college through his football scholarship along with another scholarship through his Dad's work. We are so proud of you Jordan. We can't wait to see what God has in store for you.

The countdown is on

Melissa and Jeremy
I took this picture and I'm quite proud of it. Of course Melissa doesn't like it, but I do. So I decided to post it on our website. Their wedding is getting closer and closer. Less than 3 months.
